Saitama vs Iruma-kun. (Can Iruma-kun win against One Punch Man?)

This is one of the major questions that I have for almost the longest time now. It is also the best time to discuss about it, since Mairimashita! Iruma-kun is still airing it’s second season.

When thinking about Saitama’s abilities, to end a battle with One Punch, it just makes me curious who would win if Iruma-kun vs One Punch Man in a cross Anime Fight. We all know that One-punch man is almost the most overpowered anime character with no limits to his own powers. He can easily finish anyone off with his serious punch.

Iruma-kun on the other hand, has the best evasion abilities in the world. His physical defensive capabilities are through the roof/ infinite (mentioned in the first episode). So, if we were to pit One punch man (limitless powers/ attack) against Iruma-kun (master at dodging/ infinite defense capabilities), could Iruma-kun defeat One punch man?

One punch man’s abilities

In order to think of this fairly, lets look at One punch man’s abilities, and think of as many reasons how and why One Punch man could outpower Iruma-kun.

Consecutive normal punches

One punch man’s display of power in episode 2

In episode 2 of the first season, where Saitama/ One Punch Man used consecutive normal punches, to take out the Beast King/ Lion monster, we believe that the punches are dealt so quickly, so much so that we are able to see the after image of the punches, as if there were multiple punches being used. When pitting this move against Iruma-kun from Mairimashita! Iruma-kun, there might be a possibility that he is unable to dodge multiple attacks at once.

Saitama’s Death Punch (air punch)

In episode 5 of the first season, Genos/ Saitama’s disciple gets new upgraded cyborg parts, and asks to challenge One Punch Man in a serious 1 vs 1 fight. One Punch Man stops his punch just a millimeter before it hits his student genos, creating a blast of Wind that circled around Genos’ face, and smashing into mountain causing off the charts damage to the environment nearby. This move will be almost impossible for Iruma-kun to dodge, as he couldn’t possibly avoid a wind/ air based attack. He could however, try to swallow up the blast of air with his ring of Gluttony for if he has the time to react.

Near Infinity Levels of HP

Saitama is always reactionless, when it comes to monsters around him. All that he cares about is his coat, along with whether the monster is able to give him a good fight. In just season 1 alone, here are some of the compilations of him being punched by monsters.

Episode 12 of Season 1, Saitama gets punched through multiple walls, and still remains standing

Fast reaction speed, and Speed in general

In his fight against Genos in episode 5, and his fight against Speed O’ Sonic, in episode 6, Saitama demonstrated speed above the abilities of everybody. He was able to react to Speed O’ Sonic sword slash (by biting it), and makes Genos punch his after image, while he is running away. Here are some pictures for your reference, when looking into his speed.

Genos first fight with Saitama, Genos feels like he is punching Saitama. However, he is just punching his after image, and is hitting the mountain behind him. The real One Punch Man decides to run away from the fight.

Iruma-kun’s abilities

Now, let us flip the sides of the coin, and take a look at Iruma-kun’s abilities. We will also think of many different scenarios and reasons which can earn Iruma-kun a chance against One punch man.

Able to evade everything (Infinite invasion)

In the first episode of the Anime, Iruma-kun is challenged to a duel against the head of the class student, Asmodeus Alice. We learn that after being placed in lots of unlucky circumstances, Iruma has infinite levels of evasion. The anime says that his attack points are zero, but his defense is infinite. When pitting this against One Punch Man, we wonder if One Punch could land “that punch” on him. This ability is named in the anime as, “Overwhelming Crisis Evasion Capability”.

Overwhelming Crisis Evasion Capability of Iruma-kun.

Gluttonous Ring

In the 5th episode of Mairimashita! Iruma-kun Season 1, Iruma kun gets himself equipped with a Gluttonous Feeder Ring which feeds on Mana. Gluttonous Feeder ring can be used to store Mana, and it acts like a Battery. The stored mana can be adjusted to different mana levels to be used for different magic applications. It’s main advantage is to suck away magic from an opponent during battles. It was also used to stop a blast in Season 2 of the Anime series.

An illustration of Gluttonous Feeder Ring which feeds on anyone’s powers.

When pitting the ring against One Punch Man, there might be a chance Iruma-kun might outpower Saitama, sucking all his powers away. It is still a mystery if that is possible, given that Saitama doesn’t know of the source to his own powers.

Magic in general (Includes Pandaroola)

In episode 18 of Mairimashita! Iruma-kun, Iruma-kun uses a magical spell, as powerful as the Principal of Babyls Demon School, Sullivan to save the people from an explosion in the school compound.

Against One Punch Man, who doesn’t have any experience in dealing with magic attacks, this might be his largest weakness. For if there is a cross-anime battle/ series, people might start associating One Punch Man’s powers with magical abilities. (No other possible explanation.)

Influence over others (The power of numbers)

Iruma-kun is considered to be more influential compared to Saitama. His abilities to move the hearts of people around him is way better when compared to Saitama. As Iruma is born a human, he doesn’t have natural instincts of a devil. Instead, he uses his kind heart to move others around him. Iruma-kun is also appreciative of the things around him, knowing clearly that he is weak, and has no magic powers himself.

Who would win?

When comparing these 2 heroes, it partially depends on the environment they are battling in. In the context of a demon world, where magic exists, I believe that Iruma-kun would win the battle. On the other hand, when the natural earth environment, I believe that Saitama would win. In a tight fight zone, Iruma-kun will be weakened, as there isn’t a large space for him to dodge Saitama’s punch. While Saitama focuses mainly on power (short-battles, therefore the name, One Punch), Iruma focuses on Stamina over the long run.

It has been a long time since the last Mairimashita! Iruma-Kun episode is aired. There are sayings that it has already been aired on the 15 January, yesterday. Will be looking forward to this episode’s long awaited release.

One Punch Man (Episode 7)

Episode 7 starts off. I wonder what will come for One Punch Man. Will he finally get recognized? Well, I doubt so, and that’s the whole appeal of this Anime series. If you guys have yet to check out on my previous episode 6, of One punch Man, go check it out here. I would also release a very special One Punch Man series, stay tuned for it!

An asteroid approaching?

A picture of the earth from outer space is taken, scientists are frantically calculating and discussing about the improbabilities. An astronaut working on electricals in the space station looks above him, when the light from the sun is completely blocked off. He sees the massive asteroid. In what looks like a space control center, people are discussing about a possible asteroid crash on Z city. World leaders are meeting up to discuss this matter too.

S – Class heroes are called in for a meeting

In the Hero Association in City Z, Genos meets another S-Class hero. He has spiky white hair, and wrinkles around his wise face. He introduces himself as Bang.

S-Class hero, Bang is introduced.

Bang, is also known as Silver Fang, and is a Top 3 Class S hero. However, Bang and Genos are the only ones that are in the branch office, and the whole branch office looks deserted. The other S-Class heroes didn’t show up due to various reasons. Bang tells him, S-Class heroes are always called for “impossible to solve problems”, and this time around, it’s about a giant asteroid/ meteor that has changed it’s course, and is predicted to land on City Z in 35 minutes time. Bang knows there is nothing he could do, and offers Genos to escape. Genos hurries, and wastes no time talking to him.

Genos shows no signs of giving up

Genos sprints, and parkours the city’s skyscrapers with a briefcase. At the meantime, residents of City Z are told to evacuate and they are told that the meteor has a Dragon Threat level. Most of the citizens lost hope of trying to survive the impact. Genos clicks on his briefcase, and 2 metal arms flew out, making him more powerful. He intends to fight the meteor head on. Bofoi, a.k.a.; metal knight, is another S-Class hero. He flies a remote controlled humanoid, and tries to test his new weapon on the meteor. Unlike Genos he is ranked 7, and doesn’t intend to put his life at stake. Metal knight interferes with Genos whom is trying to take out the meteor by himself. Making his calculations, Genos knows the imminent threat of the Meteor and knows it is almost impossible to stop the meteor.

Bang sees One Punch Man’s True strength

Before Genos could make any rash decisions, Bang immediately stops him, and asks him to think rationally. Bang wants Genos to “Muddle through reality”, saying that Genos is far too young to be afraid of failure. Genos hears that, and gets reminded of Saitama’s motivational words from before. With that, Genos takes out an energy orb, glowing blue in color, and decides to pour all of his energy into trying to take out the meteor. He wants to sacrifice his life to take out the meteor.

One Punch Man appears

Finally, getting some limelight is One Punch Man. He is ready, with his hero outfit, and steps into the scene asking Bang/ old man, to take care of Genos.

Bang immediately asks him for who he is. One Punch Man just states that he is a hero, before he takes off flying, leaving a crater in the building while propelled forward. Genos immediately says, “Sensei”. One Punch Man Shatters the meteor with a single punch. However, this creates smaller asteroids which crashed all over the city, and most of the buildings in City Z are destroyed.

With this, he gets the admiration of Bang, who thinks that he is the most powerful hero he has ever seen.

No Deaths!

From a television broadcast, Genos thinks that the Hero Association should have made Metal Knight team up with him, to keep the damage to the minimum. Saitama was just glad that there are no deaths in this incident. Genos agrees too, thinking that Saitama’s Punch killed the meteor’s momentum, therefore, sustaining the least damage. Saitama got a rank raise from rank 342 in C-class to rank 5. Genos also increased his ranks from Rank 17 to Rank 16 in S-Class.

We also learn the various threat levels of Monsters/ disasters. They range from Tiger (lowest threat level), Demon, Dragon, and last but not least, God (Highest threat level). Heroes would often consider the threat levels before deciding to respond or not. Genos thinks it doesn’t matter to Saitama, as he is too strong to differentiate the threat levels. Saitama doesn’t agree, and says, “of course it doesn’t matter, if the heroes run away, who’s left to help?” Genos immediately realizes his wisdom, takes a pencil, and scribbles away.

One Punch Man takes a walk, and gets humiliated

Although he manages to destroy the meteor, he gets humiliated by the people who are unappreciative of his actions. The city’s residents blames him for shattering the meteor, causing them to lose their cars and houses. People around him asks him to give up being a hero, and this hurts Saitama’s feelings. From afar, Bang watches him. He knows that Saitama saved the city, but hurts to see that Saitama is not appreciated for his actions, and is scolded instead.

One Punch Man gets forced into a duel

After trying to crush Saitama’s ego, the tank top brothers challenges Saitama to a duel, in the name of protecting the citizens from his possible outrage. Saitama simply gives Tank Top a crushing, and shouts back at everyone who is now dead silent.

Taking responsibility for crushing the meteor, Saitama asks immediately for everyone’s complaint. Later, he announces that he doesn’t care about the citizens problems, and instead says that he doesn’t become a hero for admiration. He just wants to be a hero because he wants to. Genos then starts to get uncomfortable, and asks of Saitama to go home together.

Genos, the best disciple

During the walk back with Master Saitama, Genos tells him how admirable he is. He says, “even if the public doesn’t appreciate you, I will still follow you.” Saitama turns away, and just smiles, saying he doesn’t need genos to butter him up.

Thanks guys for reading this far into the post. In this episode, although Saitama has a new admirer, Silver Fang, the public still thinks very lowly of him. This episode in One Punch Man has many ups and downs, and it is an emotional roller coaster for me. Genos words at the end really sets the atmosphere up for the next episode, and his words are heartwarming. Do look forward to the next episode. I do wish that Saitama would earn his reputation and recognition back.

One Punch Man (Episode 6) Will he lose his job?

In this episode, One Punch Man might potentially lose his job, and he struggles to find a villain to turn in. Unaware of the certain struggles he is about to face, he pushes on as the World’s Strongest Hero. Do also check out my previous episodes if you have yet to do so.

The episode starts off with a calm and sunny morning at Saitama’s place. It has been 5 days since he debuted as a professional hero, and there are no serious incidents so far. What is troubling Saitama, is Genos taking his initiative in staying at his place. Saitama (One Punch Man) sees the seriousness in Genos eyes. However, he feels bad unable to teach Genos anything, and tries to think of some techniques or a spiritual theory.

One Punch Man removed from the Hero registry?

Saitama however, only has strength training regimes which makes him stronger. He knows that it wouldn’t work on Genos who is a cyborg. Genos states, the names of C-class heroes who disregard hero activities for a week, are removed from the hero-registry list. Saitama asks Genos, seeking reconfirmation, and realized he haven’t been paying attention during the seminar. This makes Saitama nervous, and especially when there are no hero duties he could do at the moment. Genos then tells Saitama that C-class heroes often deal with small scale threats. E.g. purse snatchers, robbers and simple criminal activities. Saitama surprised, immediately changes into his hero outfit, and wants Genos to stay at home. Genos asks to follow along, and Saitama denies, saying if he is with a Class S hero, a Class C hero like him wouldn’t get any credit. Genos then rebuts, wanting to follow along as a disciple.

Saitama’s first lesson to Genos

Saitama finally thinks about it, and says, from the beginning of his journey, his intense desire to be a hero was what drove him into strength training. He wants Genos to understand that he is a cyborg, and doesn’t need to do any strength training. Saitama suggests, for him to aim higher as a hero. The casually states, Genos to change his mindset, instead of focusing too hard at trying to be more powerful. Genos is given a task to break into the top ten of the Class S heroes. However, Saitama is trying to make things up, in order to leave him to his own accord at home.

The first lesson from Saitama to Genos. Saitama is bullshitting?!?!

Saitama actively search for Small Scale threats

Back outside on his own, Saitama sped around town, in search for bad guys to turn in, while doing so, he ran till it was evening, but still to no avail. He wasn’t able to find any bad guys in the end. He decides to leave it to fate the next day when he will try to look for bad guys again. However, he is paranoid the next day, when there aren’t any threats, even when he is standing in the middle of city buildings and streets.

The streets are too quiet, I’m going to lose my job🤣🤣

Just before he starts to search for more villains, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic came out, and greets Saitama with a Kunai. Saitama pays no regard towards him, and even forgets his name, thinking it was Jack-o’-lantern Panic. Saitama says that he is very busy, and tries to walk out of a potential fight.

A fight breaks out with Speed-o’-Sound Sonic

Enraged, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic leaps in front of One Punch Man, and slashes him with a sword. However, his sword chips when One Punch Man catches the sword’s blade with his teeth, and bites it. Unaware of what’s going on, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic falls back. Later, a girl interrupts him, asking Tank Top Tiger (B-class hero) to apprehend him. Saitama misunderstands, not realizing the girl was talking about him, calling him the man who is “running around town with a creepy look on his face” yesterday. Tank Top Tiger starts laughing at Saitama saying, “Even Top 10 Class-C heroes gets recognition”. Saitama is not recognized as a hero unlike himself. Meanwhile, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic gets impatient, and bombs Tank Top Tiger from head to toe, knocking him unconscious.

Why can’t you let me find a villain?… wait… I think this counts.

When the hero Tank Top Tiger is knocked unconscious, people around him starts to panic. Saitama looks blankly, asking Sonic a reason for his actions. When asked, Speed-o’-Sonic just responds saying that he was interfering the conversation, therefore decided to place him to sleep. A chaotic aura fills the air from all the screams and cries of people, when Speed-o’-Sonic decides to wreck more havoc, to causing people to panic.

He intends to force Saitama into a fight with him, and therefore decides to do so. A boy separated away from his parents cries amid the chaos. He is unaware of a car flying towards him. Just when it was about to crash into him, Saitama stops the car. The boy, now in utter shock looks at Saitama who is complaining about why everybody keeps on interfering with his job. He still needs to look for a villain. Wait a second… Isn’t that a villain?

Saitama flies above Speed-‘o-Sound Sonic, and apprehends him for causing chaos in the city. He takes him out in one strike, hammering him onto the ground. However, One Punch Man still wonders if he is a villain, for how weak he is. Furthermore, he questions if this is “work”.

Back at the Hero Association HQ, the board of directors are talking about Saitama (C-class hero) who has just apprehended a man. The man Sonic, already has a criminal track record of engaging in heinous crimes including Assassinations’. Saitama finally gets his first recognition by the Association.

S-Class hero: Tornado

City Z is the most dangerous city where most villains and monsters live and that is also where Saitama lives in. A S-class hero, Tornado, bored of her work, and wants her superiors to allow her to kill some tough villains in City Z. However, the criminal activities there are at all time lows, and there isn’t much information about the place. Tornado wants to go there for fun and curiosity. However, she stops when the executives says, “S-Class heroes are not to meddle in those areas”.

Ghost Town Monster (Seaweed Lady)

Minutes after the 2 A class heroes enters the Ghost town, they see a Seaweed Lady Monster and approaches her. Unaware of the imminent danger they are facing. The 2 A-Class Monsters introduced themselves as Golden ball (ranked 29), and Spring Mustacho (ranked 33) and immediately engages the monster that is lurking within the city. Golden Ball fires a shape alternating bullet at the monster, and the monster deflects it away easily. Not wasting any time, Seaweed Monster grabs him from his leg with one of her “seaweed tentacles”, and knocks Golden Ball unconscious. Spring Mustacho makes a call to the HQ for backup, secretly. After a long fight, the monster strips him of his clothes through cuts and Spring Mustacho lays motionless on the ground. He makes a remark, saying no one would be able to live here, if monsters like this are an everyday occurrence.

At the meantime, Saitama who is just performing his daily task of buying groceries is walking back home. He is not in his hero uniform, and just wants to go home. When attacked by the Seaweed Lady, One Punch Man says he forgot to by Konbu broth, and doesn’t fear the Monster.

The scene cuts to a point where Saitama is cooking Konbu soup at home. He shoves Konbu which he obtained from this lady’s hair into a pot filled with boiling hot water. Genos asks about the Konbu right outside the door, and Saitama just responded, “just happened to get it for cheap”. Making it funny when we piece the information together. Genos, then tells Saitama that there are lots of speculations about Seaweed increasing hair growth, which irritates Saitama. Genos continues quoting a website saying that Konbu encourages hair growth, making Saitama snap.

Report from the 2 hero survivors

A report from City Z is turned in. The report states, “there aren’t anything noteworthy in the downtown or residential areas.” “However, during their investigation, they met a ferocious monster (seaweed lady) in the abandoned area.” The report also states that despite being unable to exterminate the monster, they thankfully managed to escape death. Seaweed lady might still be roaming the area. The purpose of Seaweed lady to visit the area is to challenge possible powerful monsters that already exist in this area. (a.k.a. Saitama). A picture taken from an unmanned aircraft shows us the devastation caused by the powerful monster. Parts of the monster which Spring Mustachio fought are found around the area (Seaweed/Konbu).

Hi guys, thanks so much for coming this far. In this episode, there is a strong urge within me that just wants Saitama to be recognized as a hero. Do you feel the same too? Most Anime today have also taken this approach of OP protagonists that go unnoticed/ unrecognized. This might be one of the keys which plays apart in the hype train on Reincarnation Anime today. Let me know your thoughts down below. See you soon!

World Trigger 1st Season recap (Ep. 11-20)

Hello to all Otakus’ and Weeaboos out there. It has been a long time since I last posted on the World Trigger 1st Season recap. My apologies, and hopefully you guys are all doing great, and continuing the Anime journey. This season recap will highlight the main events and things that happen in each episodes. Spoilers included, so WATCH OUT. For Episode 1-10 recap, click here.

Episode 11

Yuma’s History and how he supposed to die

Episode 11 begins with Yuma telling Jin-san about his past, reminiscing about his father. He explains his harsh trainings with his father, how he fought multiple battles. In his last fight, Yuma died, for not listening to his father’s advice. Yugo, his father then used all his trion/ powers to bring Yuma back to life. He loves his son, and sacrifice his own life for his. Yugo vanishes into thin air. Yuma then gets new powers of lie detection, and how he inherited a black trigger which was once his father’s.

Yugo with a smile across his face, and has turned into sand. He looks at his son, not regretting his decision.

Tamakoma Second forms with Mikumo as the Leader

Mikumo learns about Yuma wanting to resurrect his father somehow. Which was his main objective in coming to earth (To seek help). This also means that Yuma wasn’t able to obtain what he wanted, and thereby has no reason in staying alive. Yuma then decides to go back to his homeland (another world), and Yuma’s Black trigger, Replica, wants Mikumo to give Yuma a new purpose in living. After a long talk with Yuma, Yuma decides to join/ form a team with Mikumo and Chika. They both decided that Mikumo should be the leader of their team. Yuma now has a reason to live, and decides that he should live to protect Mikumo and Chika. Tamakoma Second team is formed.

Episode 12

The first meeting of Tamakoma Second

The episode starts off with a lecture by Shiori Usami, explaining that their final goal/ target is for the members of Tamakoma Second to be A rank agents in Tamakoma branch. Firstly, Yuma and Chika are tasked to move up to B-rank. Next, Mikumo who is already a B-rank would group up with them. They would join ranking tournaments to move up from rank B to rank A. Yuma however, who is not a border agent has to take part in an official enlistment beforehand. Continuing their conversation, they are all assigned roles and a mentor for training. Chika is a sniper, Yuma as a gunner, and Yuma as the attacker. The operator would be Usami herself.

Thousands of bowling pin shaped targets are seen everywhere, and Chika is still practicing her shooting even after hours since the morning. Her Trion volume has not ben used up.
Chika’s diligence amazes her mentor

Hardworking Chika shocking Reiji, her mentor

During the trainings, Reiji Kizaki (Chika’s mentor), realizes that Chika haven’t came out of the training room ever since she was in there in the morning. He recognizes Chika’s large trion volume, and compliments her hard work. He thinks Tamakoma second is full of potential. The episode ends with an alien invasion from a gate, the higher ups from the Border seemed to have anticipated this, saying that they have been waiting.

Episode 13

Agents from the away squad, coming back

Spying on Tamakoma are 2 border agents, Yosuke Yoneya, and his junior Shohei Kodera. The 2 agents are from Miwa Squad, ranked as A-07, and are spying on them as a mission. While Yosuke seems to be slacking off, Shohei is taking the mission very seriously, paying attention to every detail. We then learn that the gate which opened from the previous episode was a ship, which are return border agents sent abroad to neighboring countries.

Failed attack on Yuma

An attack on Yuma is planned very delicately, as some have objections with him being a neighbor, and him having a black trigger. This means that Tamakoma would have 2 black trigger users, which might cause a difference in power balance. Thankfully, the attack on Yuma is easily intercepted by Jin who has the ability to see into the future. The episode ends with Jin drawing his sword, a black trigger.

Jin says that with the help of Arashiyama Squad, they would win the fight, and bases that off his fore-sight into the future.

Episode 14

All about attacker weapons

The episode begins with Shiori giving Yuma and Mikumo a lecture on choosing a proper trigger and weapon for themselves. She unscrews a Trigger device, and begins introducing how a Trigger works. Firstly, there is scorpion, a sword that can change its blade shape easily. However it breaks easily, and cannot block an attack. Secondly, Kogetsu, the most popular all-around blade due to it’s high level of balance between offense and durability. However, it can’t pull its blade in or out freely, weighs slightly heavier, and it’s length couldn’t be changed. Kogetsu can expand its attack momentarily if one uses a special option Trigger, and pours more Trion into it. Next, there is Raygust, a defensive sword, which has the ability to change itself into a sword. It is the most durable sword, but it is the heaviest blade among all the others.

Yuma holds onto Scorpion, and Kogetsu, deciding which of the weapons is more suited for himself.
Jin, with the help of engineers developed the new weapon, Scorpion which proved to be more adaptable in battles.

Jin unleashes his Black Trigger Fujin

The fight continues against Jin, Tachikawa, and the others. Jin gets very passive in the fight, making the others wary about his intentions. When backed into the corner, Jin has no choice, but to use the powers in his black Trigger, Fujin, and states that he was going to move to Plan B.

Episode 15

Jin wraps up his fight, Arashiyama squad continues the fight with Miwa squad

Using the Black Trigger, Jin can transmit slashes through objects, attacking anywhere in his sight. It has a total of 8 strikes before he needs to reload again. Therfore, black triggers are S-rating. Jin-san’s foresight, allowed him to calculate how many strikes he has left, planning out how he should use his strikes, turning the fight in his favor. Jin-san fight is over, and Arashiyama squad, who fighting alongside Jin gets the spotlight.

All about Gunner Triggers

Shiori continues her explanation on Gunner based Triggers. Firstly, Asteroid, a gun with no special effects, and has highly powerful regular bullets. Secondly, is Meteor, and explosive based weapon, which blasts out wide-range damage. Thirdly, is Viper, a breakable bullet, which allows ballistics trajectory to change. Lastly, the guided bullets, like homing missiles, and can pursue its target, Hound. Anyone can swap regular bullets to Lead Bullets. Although lead bullets couldn’t do damage to someone, it can immobilize the target. The weights forms in contact with solid matter, and is able to bypass Trion shields.

Episode 16

Increasing the Glasses population

Yuma asks Shiori about Lead Bullets, and learns it is an optional trigger. Anyone can use it in combination with other Triggers. Next, Chameleon, an optional trigger which allows the user to blend into the environment. Compared to bagworm, an optional trigger, that makes one invisible to the radar. The last of which is teleportation, which allows one to teleport a few meters to where the user gazes at. However, teleportation is difficult to use, as opponents can read your gaze. Shiori adds that glasses could hide a person’s gaze, in hopes of increasing the glasses population.

One Punch Man (Episode 5)

One Punch Man has been a very old yet amazing series. These few anime posts have been really fun to write, and it reminds me of other anime memories as well. Please do remember to like and subscribe to my channel as always. Shoot out to Irina and Dee Cee, thanks so much for your support! Do check out their channel too.

The episode begins with a scene in the Hero association HQ in city A. A meeting is ongoing with the executives in the room discussing the increased numbers of applicants applying for hero association. Next, the executives also surfaced Genos application due to his fame. With this, the executives decided to keep the hero application test more difficult.

Man stares down on an application form (genos application form), in a meeting room filled with higher ups
Genos application papers being surfaced (sigh… why is Saitama not there😭)

Hero test with Saitama

The day for the Hero application test arrived, and many gathered at the hall of Hero application test 6 venue. Saitama and Genos is among them of course. The next few scenes just show us how Saitama excels at every single test. Here are some funny images.

One Punch Man doing Side to Side Jumps
One Punch Man finishing a 2.4km run in seconds, looking like a devil
He is in the zone.
One Punch Man Deadlifting more than 50 tones of weights with one hand
This guy is on steroids.
Saitama/One Punch Man tested for his throwing abilities. Throws the ball out of the indoor stadium, and makes a hole in the ceiling.
When tested on how high he could jump, One Punch Man makes another hole on the ceiling of the stadium. His head is sticking out of the stadium, and his body stays within the stadium, hung by his head.
Is his head even okay?
He punched the punching machine, and breaks multiple walls as the punching machine itself is sent flying.
Heroes that took the test with One Punch Man and their priceless reactions, saying that they should go home, as they drip with cold sweat.
Yeah… They should go home.

Saitama gets a ‘S’ wait… “C”

As Genos speaks with Saitama, we learn that there are 2 segments to the hero test. A physical and a written test. Genos says that both the written and fitness tests were far too simple for him. Saitama quickly agrees before knowing that 70 marks was the passing grade. Upon receiving his results Genos immediately tells Master Saitama that he got a perfect score,100/100. Genos got in as a “S” class hero while Saitama, is placed into “S”… Wait a second, the font size is slightly different. Saitama got into “C” class, with a score of 71 marks. He scored 21/50 for the written exam, and 50/50 for the physical test. Saitama immediately said that their marks didn’t really matter, and he was glad that both of them passed the test.

Saitama holding onto his test paper while it is being analyzed by genos the cyborg, this makes him frustrated.

Saitama’s power off the charts? A potential top tier hero

An announcement calls for Genos and Saitama to proceed to lecture hall #3 as they have passed the hero test. In the meantime, a hero named Amai mask is informed via a phone call that hero Genos has become an S-Class hero. He simply approves of Genos. Back at the lecture hall, only Genos and Saitama are seated.(I believe the others didn’t managed to pass the test.) A hero showing poses like Jackie Chan stands on the podium and congratulates them both for passing the hero test. He gives a “motivational” talk, saying that they have just begun, and tells them to keep their hero status in mind (basically not to be a shame in public.) While that all happens, Saitama couldn’t really be bothered, and kept chewing on a gum. He blew a bubble so big, which covered his face.

The A class hero, asks of them to be serious about the hero association
Yessir, this is super serious
The A class hero being annoyed and feeling outcaste by Genos and Saitama for his lack of things to say.
Well, at least Genos looks serious

Annoyed at the attitude of them both, he warns them both that he has some influence over the Association as an A class hero. He threatens the duo, on their misbehavior. They will lose points, and they might be demoted (in hero rankings).

Genos sends master Saitama off, and tells him the history of how Hero Association was formed about 3 years ago. He also reminds of Saitama that he is now his disciple, before parting ways with him. Saitama realizes the trouble he got into.

One Punch Man paranoid meme face
That paranoid face is funny

Back at the Hero’s Association headquarters, the A-Class hero from previously (Biting Snake Fist), commented on the bad behavior of the 2 students he met with today.

Since they didn’t know who he was, he commented they were just amateurs. A higher-up in hero Association understands his frustration. However he points out on their exceptional abilities. Firstly, he says that Genos is already an S-Class hero that has already out classed him, and that he had more influence over him. Secondly, he states that Saitama was not an easy guy too, saying that every of the physical tests in the venue couldn’t even draw out his full power and that he got 50/50 for his physical test. Biting Snake Fist takes the warning seriously, acknowledging his position as an A-Class hero might be too insignificant to them, and that Genos and Saitama were in a league of their own. He doesn’t like the thought of it.

Well, that’s to be expected… …

Genos first fight with One Punch Man

As Saitama’s new apprentice, Genos challenges Saitama to a fair fight in the middle of a rocky ravine. This is one of the most epic anime scenes and there are many reviews/ reactions out there.

An epic image of Genos flying, with explosions behind him.

Saitama doges most of his attacks and still looks unfazed.

Saitama realizes that Genos have new parts installed in him, making him stronger. Constantly dodging his attacks, Saitama then flies/ jump into the air. Genos makes a shot at him, while Saitama is still in mid-air, only to see Saitama dodge it easily. Saitama says, “That was close, my clothes might be burnt up again.”

Genos destroying part of the mountain due to the blast.

Feeling exhausted, but still persistent, Genos realizes that he require more speed, and blasts away the dirt on the ground around him. Saitama and Genos gets into a fight of Speed, and genos punches Saitama multiple times. But wait… Something seems amiss.

Genos sending 4 different punches at Saitama, which looks like he is, but isn't there.
Is genos dealing damage on Saitama?

Well, of course not. Genos couldn’t possibly hurt Saitama. In addition, Saitama is not even serious with his fight against his disciple yet. Genos then realizes he have always been chasing after Saitama’s after image, and he was only hitting at the rocky ravine.

He flies into the air, and does a quick scan of Saitama, seeing him to be running, away in a hilarious manner.

The real Saitama runs away from danger, at the speed of light.
Saitama decides to quit the fight.

Genos leaps into the air, and lands in front of Saitama. He activates all of his weapon units, pointing towards Saitama, and, incinerate…

Genos places his fist together, as a bunch of different weapons just appear out of his arm, and fires in a bright orange light.
Genos firing at Saitama's direction

Thinking that he won the round, he has high hopes that Saitama would now have high hopes for him. His dreams shattered, when Saitama appears behind him, and says, “I win”. He points a finger at Genos’ cheek.

A hand wearing a glove with his index finger pointing out. It pokes on Genos Chubby cheeks.

Genos with his fast reaction speed, immediately stops his firing, and tries to punch him. Saitama just dodges and lands far away from him.

Genos, triggered by One Punch Man, not taking the fight seriously, and asks of him to show no mercy to him in their fight. He wants Saitama to keep on fighting him, till he is unable to fight. Saitama immediately understands that Genos is unsatisfied with their fight, and shows his true powers to him, with no intention of killing him.

Saitama's punch in Genos' point of view. It is as if he sees a huge punch that means the death of him.

On the other hand, when One Punch Man shows his true powers, Genos could feel that he was going to die, and fears. Saitama ended the fight in a matter of seconds. Stopping his own punch just inches away from Genos’s face. A gush of air gushes around Genos, and Genos is stupefied. A gush of air appears around and behind Genos, and Genos sees Death literally.

A blast of air coming from he back of Genos' head. (Due to Saitama, stopping his punch.)
Genos in fear and shock. He stays rooted in fear on the ground.

Genos turns back behind him, and sees his nightmares. That was when he realizes that One Punch Man is in a league far above everybody, and asking him to be serious means the person’s death.

A whole valley gets destroyed, showing 2 curvatures caused by the punch.
If you guys didn’t realize, Saitama managed to blow the clouds away as well. Great detailing works right there.

Amai Mask meets with Genos

In an Udon restaurant, Genos sits and eats with Saitama. After he finishes his meal, Genos sees Amai. Amai knows of genos’ location, and meets-up with him. He wants him to know the industry expectations of him as a S-class hero. One Punch Man is now in the restaurant alone. He gets jealous of Genos for getting popular all of a sudden. On the way back home, Genos wants to excuse himself for a moment, and tells Saitama that he would be back shortly later. Genos and Saitama splits ways. The story ends with Amai mask at the balcony of his own apartment in his own robe, amazed at Genos’ ability to say that their meeting was a waste of time.

Thanks a lot for reading my post till this far. Recently I haven’t been able to post, as I am still currently a student, and I was studying for my exams. Ups to those anime producers for producing such good anime. This series was meant for us to reminisce the good anime from a long time ago. Please to see my previous post on One Punch Man here.

One Punch Man (Episode 4)

Saitama's face in a dark room, annoyed

It’s been a long time since I posted the One Punch Man Anime series. Let’s us look at episode 4, a continuation from our previous post. (p.s. if you missed episode 3, you may view it here.)

The 4th episode starts with an angry civilian making a rebuttal/ voicing out his strong opinions on the problems with the society they live in. He starts off with questioning why people are forced to work. Next, he questions why people must pay in order to eat? Stating that they are all slaves to their own work, and people don’t have true freedom in the world. The person/ Villain introduces himself as “Hammerhead”, and wants to change society. A society where people will choose whether they want to work or not.

The villains in their mecha-suits, making a bold statement out in the public.

Enraged that no one is listening to him, he decides to wreck the posh penthouse of Zeniru, to show the citizens that they are serious. He makes a funny remark, saying that high-rise apartments are symbols of inequality.

A villain appears

One of Hammerhead’s underlings says that this whole building is Zeniru’s home. With a single punch on one of the main pillars of the buildings, the whole building collapsed to the ground. Hammerhead just merely laughed, and says that it was worth risking their lives to steal are the experimental battle suits.

I wonder what would happen if One Punch man wears this suit?

With the destruction of one building, panic can be felt in the atmosphere. But, that turns into an air of humor when Hammerhead underling tells him that he is sorry, and that this is the wrong building they destroyed… …

“Bicycle guy” hero is introduced

Outside the danger zone, away from all the chaos, another hero character is introduced into the anime. A hero named “bicycle guy” helps a kid get his balloon which is stuck on the tree. Wearing a green helmet, a huge pair of sunglasses, the hero gets thanked by the boy.

Bicycle hero from one punch man.

On the other hand, our main protagonist, One Punch Man is well asleep in the comforts of his own home, and is oblivious about what is going on. He wakes up to a bad dream, and turns on the TV. Following the broadcast of the news, he learns of the identities of the criminals and their actions. Saitama can’t be bothered with them, and thinks that they are not a real threat to anyone. However, that changes when he learns that all the group members of the terrorist group have shaved their heads, and the public is warned to stay away from people with shaven heads.

Saitama in cold sweat
Fear coursing through Saitama when he learns that part of his identity of being bald headed is stolen and used for misdeeds.

Due to this, he immediately dresses up, and wants to bring down the villains. (In hopes that the public would see him as a hero, and not a villain.) He gets enraged and swears to crush them🤣.

Outside, the unstoppable group of villains bashes through any obstacle in their way, creating chaos, deeming all forms of countermeasures useless. The bicycle hero cycles quickly to the scene, formally introduces himself as Mumen Rider, the bicyclist for justice. He puts up a fighting like stance, standing in front of the bad guys. But gets punched in the face for being weak.

Zeniru’s bodyguard: Sonic is introduced.

At the penthouse of Zeniru’s residence, Zeniru faces a difficult decision whether or not to flee from the group of villains. While his butler advised him to flee, Zeniru was afraid that his reputation might suffer when he flees. Their conversation was then interrupted by Zeniru’s hired bodyguard (only for a period of time). The bodyguard looks cool, and emits an aura of fear. With just one side step, he reaches to the door, far away (Shows how fast he is).

Sonic asks of Zeniru to think of a way to dispose the pile of dead bodies

The confrontation

Sonic sneaks up on Hammerhead, a B-Class criminal but immediately fails his ambush to Hammerhead. Remaining firm, he confronts Hammerhead and his gang, taunting them to back off, before he kills them all. A fight breaks out in Sonic’s favor, as he butchers the heads of everyone with Hammerhead. Cornered, Hammerhead takes cover, and punches the ground as hard as he can. This changes the terrain around him to his benefit. However, his effort still fails short, and fainted (fake) with a kunai knife throw from Sonic at the back. He gets he name hammerhead with how thick his skull can be, protecting himself from the kunai.

When Sonic makes a call to Zeniru, Hammerhead who was playing the dead man, runs away from the scene. He thanks the heavens for his thick skull. When running into the forest, he sees our main protagonist also at the scene, trying to catch Hammerhead too.

Genos in the laboratory

Back in the laboratory, Genos can be seen lying down with lots of wires connected into his cyborg body. Genos who was still conscious talks to the scientist, he calls “Doctor Kuseno”. Although he was in a critical condition, he continues carrying the flavors of Teacher Saitama. And how he managed to save him twice. Scientist Kuseno listens, and states Genos could/might surpass his teacher soon with latest parts (upgraded) in his body.

Back to Saitama

The fight is on. Saitama introduces himself as a person who is just a hero for fun. Thinking that Saitama is no real threat to him, he immediately punches Saitama with his battle suit. However, despite that punch which changed the environment, Saitama still stands there, disappointed by Hammerhead’s attack. He comments the battle suit was lame, and knocks out Hammerhead’s battle suit, leaving him naked and running away. (After a full on serious fight from Hammerhead).

Chill man, I’m just chilling naked here

Before Saitama decides to leave the forest for home, he gets greeted by Sonic, unaware of what is going on. Sonic deems Saitama as one of Hammerhead’s underlings, and thinks that Saitama is lying when he told him the truth. Underestimating the strength of Saitama, he approaches Saitama, trying to take him down. However, Saitama reacts very quickly to his attacks, and manages to dodge both of Sonic’s attacks.

Sonic, Saitama’s new “Rival”

Sonic couldn’t be bothered about where Hammerhead went now. He realizes the strength of Saitama, and deems him as a natural enemy to him. (For being undefeated all this time). Trying to take down Saitama, but this time more seriously, he dashes around the trees. Despite his speed, Saitama sees his smile, and says Sonic was just lying. He knows that Sonic just wanted a worthy fight to try his new moves.

Sonic dashes around Saitama, and his speed makes it look like a black ball surrounding Saitama. Our hero just reacts to Sonic, and shocks him over, ending the fight with an accidental punch to Sonic’s balls.

Sonic’s weakness: His balls

Sonic then promised to get stronger so that he could take down Saitama another day. He also states his commitment to it by saying that he would stop working, and only train. He introduces himself as “Speed-o’-Sound Sonic”, and asks Saitama for his name.

Saitama’s worries

Back at home, Saitama and genos sits over a low table in the middle of Saitama’s apartment. They are discussing about Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, and Genos volunteers to get rid of him for if he is a nuisance to Saitama. At the table, Saitama opens his heart and shares with Genos his problem: NO ONE KNOWS WHO HE IS. While stating the monsters that he defeated and many more, genos learns that Saitama is not a registered hero in the Hero Association, and helps Saitama register for the Hero test. Saitama learns that hero’s that are not registered with the association are deemed in the public eye as “Weirdoes spouting nonsense viewed with suspicion.” Saitama immediately asks of Genos if he is signed up. Genos states that he doesn’t feel the need to sign up, and told him that he hasn’t signed up.

Genos acknowledged by Saitama as his Disciple

Saitama then told Genos that he would make him his disciple if he signs up with him. Genos agrees whole heartedly. Saitama and Genos fills up the Hero Application test the next day alone, and listens to the news of the Hammerhead,”Paradisers incident” before he gets to sleep.

This episode has been a ride, and a lot of fun. As always, thanks a lot to those that have subscribed to the channel already. I am very thankful for your support. Do remember to like and share this ONE PUNCH MAN post to your friends.😎

World Trigger 1st Season recap (Ep. 1-10)

Since 2014, this anime series, World Trigger hasn’t aired their anime series for a very long time. After the long wait, the second season, along with the third came together, one after the other. Most anime fans might have already forgotten the storyline to the first season, unable to make sense of the second. This blog post might include potential spoilers for the anime World Trigger Season 1. For those who already watched the season, and wants a recap before pouncing on season 2, this is for you. The first season of the anime has a total of 73 total episodes, and thus I split the recap up into 10 episodes each per recap. Enjoy!

Episode 1

How nostalgic, in the first episode of this series, we see the humble beginnings of Mikumo-kun(main protagonist of the story) studying together with Chika Amatori (the girl with exceptional amount of trion) in the same class. They met up with Yuma Kuga (kid with white hair) who’s a transfer student. Yuma was suspected of working with the border for being in a school so close to the war zone. He also showed exceptional abilities, example: not hurt when hit by a car/ able to knock a bully off his seat with just a paper toss.

The bully settling their beef against Yuma and Mikumo. Fighting in a place called Forbidden zone. (A place where monsters might appear in).

In the forbidden zone, came a siren which announced the arrival of monsters from another world, through a black hole(gate). The fight between Yuma and the bullies immediately ended, with the bullies now more fearful for their lives.

The fight ended with Mikumo showing Yuma that he is in the border. Mikumo seeing how Yuma had a black trigger/special trigger, killing the powerful monster in a single hit from the top. (He also saved the bullies, a very upright and virtuous thing to do.) Conversing with Yuma, he learns more about his background, and why he came to Japan. The episode ended with Yuma saying he’s a “Neighbor”/ someone who lives in another planet/came to earth via a gate.

Episode 2

In the second episode, Mikumo doubts that Yuma is a neighbor. However, after spending time with him, he sees his violent nature. In addition, he saw Yuma got hit by a car, and how his body recovered like a monster. And thus, confirms that he is no ordinary person and believes he is a neighbor. Knowing the hard truth, he asks Yuma not to tell of anyone of his true identity (believes that Yuma is a good person at heart, doesn’t want Border to keep him captive). The bullies continued bullying Mikumo and Yuma despite being saved by them yesterday. We learn that the memories of trespassers of the forbidden zone are erased to prevent any information leaks. Although being a Border Agent is highly reputable/ considered like a hero, Mikumo doesn’t desire attention. He thus is a Border Agent in Secret.

A gate suddenly appears in his school/ never happened before. The episode ends with Mikumo being forced to use his trigger, which meant revealing his identity as a border agent. He does this to keep harm away from the students in the school.

Mikumo in his C-rank uniform (lowest rank in Border), saves the day.

Episode 3

Everywhere was chaos, and students are all running away from the monster which just appeared in school. Yuma immediately tells Mikumo that his chances of winning the fight is very slim, but Mikumo still determined ran and stopped the monster in it’s tracks. (Trying to buy time for the other students to escape.) Learning that Mikumo is in trouble, Yuma is in a dilemma. Saving Mikumo would require him to use his black trigger, and reveal that he is a neighbor. Yuma decides to believe in the faith in Mikumo’s trigger, and saves the day using Mikumo’s training trigger. (He killed 2 Monsters.)

Yuma defeating the Marmods in one strike, using a class C Trigger/ low level weapon

The students in school thinks that Mikumo’s the one that killed the monsters, and everyone praises him. Mikumo has no choice but to be on the receiving end of those praises in order to protect the identity of Yuma. Soon later, border agents (ranked A) came down to the scene. They learned what happened. Although Mikumo was known to defeat the two monsters, he has to face punishment as he is a trainee, and is not allowed to use his trigger other than training purposes.

Episode 4

The border agents that arrived to the scene checked the scene, and called the recovery team before leaving. Mikumo was lucky to be let off the hook. Now, Mikumo gains the attention of everyone in the school, and his identity of being a border agent is no longer a secret. The bullies that used to pick on him decides to let him be.

Mikumo gets acknowledged and thanked by the people he saved in the city.

After school, Mikumo was greeted by Ai Kitora, a rank 5 border agent, to be escorted back to HQ to receive his punishment. Yuma follows along with them. Along the way, a gate appears near them, and a more scary looking monster appeared. Ilgar, a rare kind of monster flies over the city and bombs the streets. Kitora faces the opponent, while Mikumo who is out of trion decides to help the people in the city. Mikumo wants Yuma to help Kitora for if she is in danger, and asks of Yuma to do it in secrecy. Yuma installs a part of his replica’s body into Yuma, giving more strength to help the people in the city. Kitora jumps on top of Ilgar, and tries to take it down.

Episode 5

Kitora takes down the Ilgar, but that also poses another problem. An Ilgar would choose to fall in the nearest location where there are most people, and would self-destruct using it’s inner Trion. Yuma uses his skill “Chain Triple”, and pulls the Ilgar down into the water before it could self destruct. Kitora gains the credit for brining down the monster. She knows that there was someone behind the scenes helping her in secret. Kitora makes friends with Mikumo. Jin (rank 1 border agent) is summoned to the meeting room in HQ. In the course of the meeting, Jin agrees to solve the mysteries behind the irregular gate openings, and wants Mikumo to be forgiven in exchange. He states that Mikumo might know the reason. He knows that via his “Side effect”.(Mikumo now under his care.) The commander agrees, and the meeting is dismissed.

Mikumo being interrogated in the meeting. He becomes a Rank B agent.

After the meeting, another border agent Shuji Miwa, ranked 7 asks Mikumo if the monster that appeared in the forbidden zone was killed by him. Mikumo says yes, and Miwa suspects that Mikumo is in touch with a neighbor, due to evidences pointing towards it. Mikumo is thus placed under close watch (in secrecy).

Episode 6

With many un-answered questions, Mikumo wasn’t able to sleep well. In the meantime, Yuma in school, (midnight), is finding out the cause of the irregular gate openings. The next morning, Jin meets up with Mikumo. He interrupts Miwa who tries to stalk them, and asks them to go back to the base. Jin and Mikumo meets up with Yuma. Jin knows that Yuma is a neighbor, and believes that Yuma is a good neighbor. He asks Yuma if he knows the cause to the gate openings. Jin also reveals that his “Side effect” is reading the future, and knows that Yuma is key to solving the gate problem.

Yuma explains, gates are opened due to “Rad”, which hides itself in parts of the city, absorbing trion from humans, opening a gate with trion. Yuma’s chaperone, Replica adds, there are thousands of them in the city. Under Jin’s command, all Border agents united to eliminate “Rad”, and it only took them a day. Yuma gets thanked from Jin, and Yuma wants Mikumo to get the credit instead.

While Chika and Yuma are waiting for Mikumo, they got to know each other, and Chika teaches Yuma how to ride a bicycle. Not long later, the monster alarm sounded, and Chika runs towards the forbidden zone trying to lead the monster away from the city. Yuma saves Chika in nick of time, while Mikumo fights the monster, killing it.

Mikumo in his Class B border agent outfit, takes out the monster.

Episode 7

Mikumo formally introduces Chika and Yuma to each other in an isolate place where there are no Border agents around. Mikumo intends to let Yuma know more about Chika, thinking that he might know the reason why so many monsters target Chika. Chika has a huge amount of Trion, shown by Replica. We then learn about Chika history, and why Osamu Mikumo doesn’t want to ask Border to help defend her.

Chika’s large amount of Trion when measured.

Border agents appeared, and saw the trigger which comes from a neighbor. They immediately shot him, and a fight broke out. While Yuma is trying to take down the 2 border agents, Mikumo calls Jin, and asks for his help. Jin simply responded that he didn’t need to help them, as Yuma would win the battle, when he looks into the future. The fight continues with Yuma being shot by a sniper positioned far away.

Episode 8

In the air, Yuma gets shot by two snipers, and loses an arm. Yuma still looks calm. As he tries to hold himself back against the 2, trying to negotiate with them. Yuma copied the opponents moves, and wins the fight. He asks to properly talk with them. They immediately learnt that Yuma has a Black Trigger (a superpower). Yuma then makes friends with the other border agents. Yuma and Chika goes to eat on their own.

While Mikumo and Jin are meeting with the higher-ups in the HQ, Jin is ordered to capture Yuma with his black Trigger, to obtain another black trigger on their own.

Episode 9

Chika and Yuma continued discovering the different foods in Japan, while waiting for Mikumo. Back in the meeting room in HQ, Jin immediately declines the order, saying that he is not his immediate superior when it comes to the chain of commands. Rindo who is Jin’s superior tells Jin to get the black trigger. But Jin could use any way he sees fit. Jin agrees, knowing that he doesn’t need to kill him. Osamu was ordered to say the name of the neighbor. Saying “Kuga Yuma”, (Kuga is like a Surname), the room begins to feel a different vibe.

The commander wants to find out if Yuma’s father is Yugo, and asks of Mikumo and Jin to ask him that. We also learn that Yugo is one of the founding fathers of Border. With this, they know that Yuma is on their side, and decides not to take actions against Yuma.

Yuma is asked to join the border by Jin.

Episode 10

Yuma decide to take a look at Tamakoma’s branch, a branch which loves, and welcomes neighbors. While Mikumo has high expectations to what “Super Agents” he might see in the tamakoma. But…

Greeted by a 5 year old riding a capybara

The laid back atmosphere is explained as it is like a base where border agents stay. As there are only about 10 people in the base, it has a homely vibe. However, Tamakoma’s Branch despite it’s small size is competent, and all the border agents in their branch are ranked A. Yuma decides to join border, and Osamu, together with Yuma and Chika got to choose the rooms that they each want to stay in. After a heart to heart talk with the head of Tamakoma’s branch leader, Yuma decides to join tamakoma as a border agent. We also learns of the history of Yuma and his relationship with Yugo/ how Yugo died.

That’s the short summary of 10 episodes, hoped that you guys liked it. Do remember to like, subscribe and comment for if you haven’t already done so. This anime is mentioned in my 1 word anime post, do check it out here.

One Punch Man (Episode 3)

It has been a long time since I last posted, my apologies. It has been a long 2 weeks for me, and a tremendously busy schedule has almost filled up all my hours. Let’s not waste any time, and look at the third episode of One Punch Man!!!

The Anime starts of with an introduction of a villainy scientist, along with how his humble origins. We learn that due to him becoming disillusioned with the world, and turned into weird thoughts/ ideas regarding evolution of humans. The scientist dream?: “We should not be striving to advance human civilization, but rather the artificial evolution of humans as a species.” His dream was pushed away by the masses despite his hard work, which made him dedicate himself to research, and only after reaching the age of 70, his efforts had began to yield results. He then used the findings to his own benefits. Firstly, he regained his youth. Next, he began cloning himself, and together with his clones, he named his laboratory the ” House of Evolution”. He then started to conduct countless experiments with animals to create new species, and it was not before long when he then used human subjects in his own evil experiments.

Now we are cut back into the present time where the monster, Armored Gorilla is being life threatened by Saitama and Genos-sama. With Saitama’s “no time to waste/ doesn’t like to listen to long stories”, the armored gorilla is asked to cut the story short to 20 words and below.🤣

Back to the present world, Saitama learns that this evil villian is very interested in his powerful body, and therefore plans to use his body (overpowered human being) to conduct research on evolution. In order to obtain his body, he sent armored gorilla to “capture” him.

Genos then suggested to attack the house of evolution, not allowing the scientist to try any new moves on them. Saitama then started brisk walking away, and tells genos that he could only do attack them as soon as possible today, as there is a sale going on tomorrow, and therefore he wouldn’t be able to attack them the next day. The armored gorilla still sits tight on the ground, watching them leave, before he uses an antenna on his head to warn the doctor that Saitama, along with Genos is heading his way. Genos then pops back, looking at him with stern eyes, asking the armored gorilla if there are any other cyborgs in the house of evolution, and whether or not they had a history of destroying towns in the past. (Should be pertaining to something encountered before/ he has eyes of revenge.)

Genos gets sensitive as he asks armored gorilla a question

The scene changes to the control center in the “House of Evolution” the evil scientist along with his clones are now discussing on the counter forces to stop/ deter Saitama and his disciple, Genos from attacking their laboratory. They made an analysis on their remaining elite forces (all wiped out), and the mad scientist states that they have no choice but to let out their trump card/ Carnage Kabuto. The atmosphere in the laboratory turns into a chaotic mess, with all the other scientist’s voicing their fears/ bad feelings about the matter at hand.

Saitama and Genos runs to the evil hideout as quick as they could, and they stood at the bottom floor of a run down building, situated nicely beside some rocky mountains. Before Saitama could finish counting the total number of levels in the building, his disciple wastes no time and immediately annihilates the building with one massive fire shot, bringing the building down in crumbles.

Before^
After^

At the bottom of the building, there is something that looks like a metal bunker, and Saitama sensei easily rips the metal lid open slowly. In the basement, there is pin-drop silence, followed by the screams of a man in agony. His screams are amplified by the long and silent corridor, which looks as if there is no end in the passageway. The corridor is well lit, but the walls are all reinforced steel, which made the corridor appear dark despite the lighting.

The new monster is introduced. Carnage Kabuto, emits a dangerous aura around him despite being all chained up. He continues to kill one of the mad scientist’s clones. On the ground, multiple blood stains, along with torn clothes can be seen on the floor. (Probably from killing previous clones.) This time round, Carnage Kabuto meets up with the real mad scientist, and the scientist pleads him to help him to capture Saitama who is making their way into the facility. He then pleads him to capture Saitama, either died or alive, and states that only he could defeat him.

Carnage Kabuto grabbing firmly onto the mad scientist, and runs towards Saitama and Genos.

Genos senses the two living being that are approaching them, and asks Saitama to prepare himself. However, before Genos could react to Carnage Kabuto, he is crushed to the wall by his sheer speed, and the monster challenges Saitama to a fight in their combat experiment room. The monster states that he is the strongest monster in the whole of the house of evolution, and that since the fight is against Saitama, Genos wasn’t needed.

In the combat experiment room, before the fight could start, Genos steps into the arena shooting a blast of fire at Carnage Kabuto. Carnage Kabuto unharmed, just simply asks, “oh, you are still alive”, before outpowering Genos to another fight, rendering Genos with a curly like hair and a broken face, unable to fight.

Without wasting any further time, all the attention goes back to Saitama and the monster. Saitama feels motivated off his potential opponent whom might give him a great fight. The evil scientist looks at the battle between Carnage Kabuto and Saitama from the distance away, before the beginning of their fight, he expects Saitama either to lose, or to barely win with his current strength enabling him to cling on to the strand of his life. He stands away from any danger, looking at both of them with great anticipation with his eyes.

Carnage Kabuto runs on the walls of the room, and starts with attacking Saitama from behind him. However, before he cold land a blow on him, he immediately feels a chill run down his spine, and backs off, flying far into the corner with fear in his eyes. Saitama casually asks him what is he doing, and both the scientist and Genos were speechless. The scene shows us the inner-dialogs of Carnage Kabuto, where he realizes that although “He’s leaving himself wide open, yet all my instincts are screaming, sending out danger signals!” Carnage Kabuto immediately takes a deep breath in, and asks with a loud voice, “How the hell did you get that strong?!”

Saitama’s meme look

The facial expressions of Saitama then changed, (looks very serious), he also asks Genos to listen up, as he would reveal his secret for becoming this strong. With the atmosphere in the air becoming tense, and heavy, Saitama immediately changed the atmosphere with the most ridiculous answer of all, “One hundred push-ups! One hundred sit-ups! One hundred squats! Then a ten kilometer run. Every single day, eat three meals a day, a banana in the morning, and never to use the A/C or heater in the summer or the winter, so that one can also strengthen the mind.” He then states that after doing it for a year and a half, he immediately realized that he became bald, and had become stronger. He mentions that one must train like hell to the point where his hair falls out, to then become strong.

Carnage Kabuto gets angry from Saitama’s remark and turns into a different monster

When Carnage Kabuto becomes the different monster, he then gains an increasing amount of speed, an states that when he gets into Carnage mode, he would lose control for a whole week, and would also be more hungry for killing. He then says that after killing him, he would go into town and rampage until the next Saturday! This makes Saitama realized that he messed up his dates, and realized that today was a Saturday. He had missed the “Bargain day at the supermarket!!” This makes him angry and sad at the same time, and lands a punch on Carnage Kabuto, ending the fight in one hit.

Carnage Kabuto punches Saitama in all directions, not leaving Saitama with a scrath
Saitama not doing anything, and ending the fight with one punch (meme face)

The scientist just stands at the side of the room with broken, and tilted glasses, and he can’t believe his eyes. Genos immediately tells Saitama that he would be able to still make it to the supermarket, for if he hurries there, as the place is only four hours away. Learning about this, Saitama gets up on his feet, and wastes no time on the scientist. He doesn’t apprehend the scientist, and just punched through layers of the walls, leaving a straight path to the outside world.

Saitama’s overwhelming power

The scientist stands at the sight of the mess, and the “Great sale pamphlet” which Genos gave him. He immediately says that he is done with evolution, and that he needs to change his ways.
